NYE happens to be my mum's birthday, so we generally leave the plans up to her regarding what the fam will be doing. However as I'm pretty sure that you already know - she's not much of a planner! And to top that off she likes to play the gulit card - don't forget that we are Italian and that just comes with the territory. So it's always interesting to ask about the "plans" for that day/night.
As for New Years Day - the first of the year was my beloved Grandmother's Birthday (yes she gave birth to her daughter on the eve of her own birthday). New Years Day is another BIG family day for us. Cooking, eating, sharing good times and making memories.
Wanna know something that is funny? In my day dreams about how this New Years Day will go - it always has me relaxing in front of the boob tube watching the Pasadena Rose Parade - fairly typical - right?
Well the thing is...actually two things:
A. Being that New Years Day falls on a Sunday - the city of Pasadena has it in contract that anytime New Years Day falls on a Sunday that the Rose Parade be held on January 2nd.
B. We actually have tickets again this year to go to the Rose Parade - DUH - so what the heck in hecksville was I thinking?!
Yesterday I ventured out to the stores and the mall to do a couple of exchanges and to get two more Christmas gifts for myself (one is from Dave).
I've been thinking about how much of a pain I find it to always be traveling around with my laptop - it's not that is it massive or heavy.
But being that I don't do the TSA fast track I need to always unpack my laptop, getting it back into my over packed carry on is always fun - not! Plus carrying it around because I WON'T leave anything of value in the car - kinda becomes a bit of a burden since I'm the type who prefers not to be carrying anything (unless it was one of my babies - when they were babies - because I would never use a stroller - EVER).
So like I said, I've been thinking about how to fix this situation and I've reserached and found that now they have adapters to plug into your iPhone/iPad that allow you to insert SD Cards - YAY!
With that along with a keyboard for my iPad writing my daily scoop while on the go will now become much easier and traveling will be less cumbersome!
